Since how long the symptoms are there? Any other symptom, like cough, fever? Swelling or redness in chest area? Was any test done? Are you on any medication? Is there any significant past illness?

Thank you for the input.

Sore throat with soreness & feeling of lump is likely to be due to an infection. The lump can be enlarged lymph gland. There can be a chest infection too. Other cause of pain in the chest can be musculoskeletal, costochondritis etc. I would advise you to have an examination by doctor & have a throat swab test. After examination doctor can advise other tests too like blood counts, X rays etc. You can need antibiotics. Do warm saline gargling. You can try motrin or tylenol for pain.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
